I dusted off my sewing machine about 8 months ago, and since that time I have been working to improve my sewing skills by:
– Basic home decor projects (Pillows, curtain panels, shower curtain etc.)
– Beginner sewing classes at my local sewing center.
I found out that the structure of a weekly class has really helped me improve my skills. By doing a project that focuses on a particular skill each week, I have been able to review the basics and correct any bad habits.. or barriers.
(Button holes have been demystified!)
But now I am reaching the end of the Beginner series of sewing lessons offered at my local sewing center.
Any suggestions on how I can move forward from that point?
Some books I have started to read are still beyond my skill level, but I am outgrowing the sewing classes.
What do you suggest for a “moving past beginner” sewer?
New to sewing again.
For example, I subsribed to Threads, and I think the articles are interesting.. but I won’t be doing a Chanel suit anytime soon! I need challenges that are matched to my sewing level – beyond advanced beginner… but still rough around the edges.
